This Week's Prompts


...a world where everyone has a superpower, but the protagonist's power is deemed useless until a critical moment.


...a world where animals can talk, and the protagonist has a conversation with their pet about their day.


Use the prompts as a jumping-off point. Don't feel tied to the concepts or the suggested formats. Do what feels right to you!

But, if you flourish under more direct instruction, consider that the first prompt is designed to be a little more intensive than the first. Maybe you'll be inspired to write a short story! The second prompt is geared toward flash fiction or a scene from a longer piece.
